I was going to link up with a maker of long putters. I balked because he advocates face-on putting. It’s not a bad technique. . .for putts up to say 15 feet or so. But when you have a 25 or 30 footer. . .there are problems. You have to make an adjustment in technique for the longer putts. Every golfer knows that you have to make adjustments for longer putts. . .with all of the technique now being taught. Everyone also knows that the second we alter our technique. . .we lose the feel we had with the first technique. Well. . .if you take the putter back with your arms and hands. . .and then hit the putt WITH YOUR BODY. . .you don’t have to make any adjustments. How hard you hit the ball is based on body-feel. . .not the feel in your arm and hand. . .just like with my full golf swing (the MONGOOSE GOLF SWING). You can hit 2 foot putts or 125 foot putts with the same technique.
Again. . .how hard you hit the ball is based on feel. The problem is as one tires or is put under extreme stress. . .such as in tournaments or from normal aging. . .the feel of how hard to hit the ball breaks down. Not so. . .if you’re body gets in the act. As with my golf swing. . . also with my putting technique. . .numberless billions of nerve cells are introduced into the technique. . .through your body. You hold the long putter like a broom. . .not against your belly. . .which I find puts all the feel into the hands. . .which as I just related break down in feel under stress or fatigue. Take the club back as if you’re sweeping the floor. . .no more than a few inches for most putts up to 20 feet. . .and tap it. . .again tap it. . .WITH THE SIDE OF YOUR BODY.
What is critical is keeping your eye on the ball. Once you’ve selected your line. . .(always allow more than you originally thought on putts from 10-50 feet). . .never look at the line again. . .concentrate on the back of the golf ball and tap it with your body. if they go 10 feet past at first. . .you’re doing well. You’ll not believe how quickly your body “gets it.”
We know now that we store memory all over our bodies. We don’t know how it’s done. . .but we know that our leg begins to come to terms with how to kick a ball. . .or our feet come to terms with how to kick while we’re swimming. . .etc. Muscle memory is a legitimate term used by sports trainers. I would add the phrase. . .”BODY MEMORY.” I’ve proven to myself that I have a great deal of body memory for my golf swing and for my putting technique. And I’ve proven it doesn’t go away or get sluggish when I’m tired.
|Too much feel needed in right hand|
I’ve learned to rely on it. . .putting has always been the real strength of my game. . .the way I’ve shot good scores all my life. The same goes for Adam Scott and the new kid who just won with the long putter. I highly recommend my putting technique. Again. . .hold the long putter as if you're sweeping the floor. . .take the putter back with your lower hand. . .and hit it with the side of your body. The right side if you're right handed. . .the left side if you're left handed.
